Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORY! -

AN­GE­LES CITY— More than 2,000 bik­ers from all over Lu­zon joined this city’s first Bike­to­ber­fest held at the In­fin­ity Grounds, Satur­day.

Co-pre­sented by the An­ge­les City Tourism Of­fice (ACTO), par­tic­i­pat­ing bike groups and or­ga­ni­za­tions ex­hib­ited their owned brand of mo­tors and showed off their uniquely de­signed cus­tomized bikes.

Ac­cord­ing to An­ge­les City Tourism Of­fi­cer John Mon­tances, the event was held to build con­nec­tion and ca­ma­raderie among dif­fer­ent bike mo­torists in the coun­try, es­pe­cially in Lu­zon.

He fur­ther added that the event was en­dorsed by ViceMayor Br yan Ne­po­mu­ceno and Coun­cilor Joseph Ponce to be part of the month-long Fi­es­tang Ku­liat fes­tiv­ity.

“One of the pur­poses of this event is to at­tract tourists. A huge num­ber of at­ten­dees will surely check-in on our ho­tels spe­cially our for­eign del­e­gates,” said Mon­tances.

The event, which was held si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the se­cond day of the Tigti­gan Ter­akan Keng Dalan (TTKD), also fea­tured a hal­loween cos­tume party, bike shows and a unity bike ride from The In­fin­ity to the Bayani­han Park in Bal i bago .

Ac­cord­ing to Lei Loianco, head of Mio mo­torist club in Pam­panga, this is the group’s “first time to have a ride in the prov­ince since the or­ga­ni­za­tion was founded. Loianco fur­ther added that the event will help ex­pand their group by build­ing new teams in Pam­panga.

Oliver Me­ne­ses, a big bike owner, ex­pressed that the event is an op­por­tu­nity for bike-lovers to show their col­lec­tions.

“I am with my big bike to­day and I reg­is­tered it for the bike show. Be­cause of my en­thu­si­asm with and love for bikes, I cus­tomized a de­sign for my own and mod­i­fied it in my own way”, said Me­ne­ses.

“We are over­whelmed by the num­ber of at­ten­dees and par­tic­i­pat­ing bik­ers. We will try to have it as a reg­u­lar event in our an­nual Fi­es­tang Ku­liat,” Mon­tances sai d. — AC-CIO with re­ports from Maria Cas­san­dra Z. Agapi t o
